DCICN 1.0 – Simple Networks

This course is included in our On-demand training solution.

Overview

There are various aspects to IP addressing, including calculations for constructing an IP address, classes of IP addresses designated for specific routing purposes, and public versus private IP addresses. After completing this course you will be able to describe how IP addresses and their protocols function. For the Internet and internal networks to function correctly, data must be delivered reliably. In the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) and TCP/TP models, the transport layer manages the process of reliable data delivery and learning how UDP and TCP function between the network layer and the transport layer provides a more complete understanding of how data is transmitted in a TCP/IP networking environment. In this course, you will learn the function of the transport layer and how UDP and TCP operate. Lastly, you will learn about the elements that govern host-to-host communications and how these elements interact. This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that covers the objectives for Cisco exam 640-911: Introducing Cisco Data Center Networking.

Target Audience

Data center network engineers and learners embarking on a network administration or engineering career who wish to expand their skills in data center networks
